AFC Telford United have announced the loan signing of centre-forward Lewis Reilly from Crewe Alexandra.

The 20-year-old was offered pro terms in summer 2017, having impressed with his eye for a goal in the U18 setup.
The goalscorer was tasked with replicating that in the Under-23 side, which he did on a regular basis.

Reilly went on to make nine appearances in the first team during the 2017/18 season, making two starts and three sub appearances in League Two, and scoring two goals on his full debut in a 4-2 Leasing.com Trophy defeat to Port Vale at Vale Park.

Last year, he made just two Crewe appearances but continued to score regularly for the U23s before gaining experience out on loan at Curzon Ashton in the National League North, where he scored 8 goals in 16 appearances before he was recalled back to Crewe for the rest of the season.
